19: Women in Beer - Claire from Dungarvan

Season 1, Ep. 19

“Have you tried Dungarvan?” Christina, Lisa, and Joanne chat to Claire from Dungarvan, ahead of International Women's [Brew] Day and Women's History Month.

Claire Dalton is one of the four founders of Dungarvan Brewing Company, together with her husband Tom, her brother the Head Brewer Cormac, and Cormac’s wife Jen. Back in the crash of 2008, they were punters themselves watching the craft beer scene lap up to the Copper Coast, and they decided to take the plunge and make the beer themselves. The local community has proudly embraced and supported them ever since. Claire runs the tastings, tours, and the business side of the brewery. Expect to hear about discovering local beer, how the women in beer were always here, and sustainability in small breweries on the finish.
